Description
Join community members as we work to maintain a 2-acre community garden located on park owned land.  The mission of Festival Beach Community Garden is to serve East Austin by providing members with nutritious food, making regular donations to local food pantries, and creating a sustainable urban-nature ecosystem that provides a habitat for wildlife and transforms an underutilized space into a beautiful and useful community area.

  • Mulch trees in the habitat area and orchard
